Max Lipsey, born in Santa Barbara, embarked on a creative journey that led him to the Netherlands. After completing a liberal arts study in New York, he continued his education at the Design Academy Eindhoven, graduating in 2007. Following his studies, Lipsey established his studio in Eindhoven.
Lipsey’s design process involves a hands-on exploration of materials. Before putting pen to paper, he thoroughly acquainted himself with the material, experimenting, bending, sawing, and feeling until he understood its properties inside and out. This curious and craftsman-like approach is reflected in his designs.
In addition to creating his production designs, Lipsey has garnered attention for his work on specific interior and furniture projects, where he aims to understand how an object engages in a dialogue with its environment. His versatile and hands-on approach to design has contributed to his reputation in the field.
